1990 300SL FAILED CA SMOG HC

THE PREVIOUS OWNER TOOK EXCELLENT CARE OF THIS CAR.

IVE OWNED IT SINCE AUGUST OF 2010 , IT PASSED SMOG IN JUNE OF 2010

IT HAS 171K MILES NOW AND 162K MILES WHEN I BOUGHT IT.(LESS THAN 10K IN MILES IN TWO YEARS)

THE PREVIOUS OWNER TOLD ME ABOUT HAVING THE CAR TESTED RIGHT AFTER A GOOD 70 MPH DRIVE.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A TEST ONLY SMOG FACILITY THAT UNDERSTANDS THE COMPLEXITIES OF THESE OLDER MERCEDES PASSING EMISSIONS?

THE EX OWNER SWEARS SOME SMOG TEST GUYS ARE MORE ASTUTE THAN OTHERS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING THESE CARS PASSED.


HELP!!

How much off were you? I never had a problem passing the smog with European car, but used "Pass the smog" in a bottle on my old Chevy. It did work.
